    Processor Installation

      I installed an "Intel Pentium 4 550 3.40GHz 800MHz 1MB Socket 775 CPU" into my Dell Inspiron Desktop 530S computer, and when I boot up the computer, and the fan runs, but the Power button never turns blue (the color it should be when it starts up), and i get a blank screen, as if my moniter was on but my computer was not. Is there something I need to do to make the computer recognize the new processor? Or is this processor incompatible with my computer.

          Hello,

           

          It is difficult to say whether it would work or not.

           

          Here you have a couple of things to check:

           

          - CPU and Board Compatibility = check with board manufacturer.

          - Whether board needs to have a specific bios in order to work with the CPU.

          - Power Requirement.

           

          All the best,

           

          Kind Regards,

          Aryan.
